Addendum to

Swedish laptop knee table Bräda (new name BYLLAN)

(see older blogpost).

I have introduced this laptop table as rather cheap, useful wheelchair tray.

The writer and musician Robert Schneider volunteered courageously as Bräda tester.

He is known for his extravagant-hessian writing style (

I mentioned one of his books in an older blogpost.
He took the knee tray Bräda through extra tough quality tests.

Despite of the little bit too soft surface board I was positively surprised.
Here during a transport test with additional tray, at speed of exactly 11 km/h with

3 liters hop blossom ice tea and 6 x 0,5 liter pints

Due to safety reasons, this test is mainly executed with dummies. ;-)

A typo has slipped in, it was at 0,11 km/h.

Technical Aids Tips and Tricks XIV

Monday, July 26th, 2010


Because of the paralysis of my legs the muscles of my thighs are flagged in such a way, i.e. flat, that they meanwhile form a quite acceptable transport table. The biggest difficulty is just to convince the legs not to drift outside when they are used as deposit for e.g. a bottle of non-alcoholic beer. The dropping rate is considerable. I am not alone with this kind of issue.
Many wheelchair drivers build a rather symbiotic relationship with their knee tray.
I have already seen a self-constructed knee tray coated with green felt, with which at night probably a game of poker is played for the small pension.
So far so good!

At the Swedes with the big yellow and blue shopping bags I have discovered an excellent

knee tray type BRĂ„DA (new name BYLLAN).

Officially it is a laptop knee table with mobile phone pocket on the side.

The shape nestles ergonomically against my

six-bake belly.

A non-slip reel has to be put on it still!
Safety instruction:
The BRĂ„DA (new name BYLLAN) is not a medical device.
No liability is assumed for falling parts.
It doesn’t have a medical device number and can’t be prescribed by the doctor. The immense acquisition costs of 14,95 € have to be completely borne by the patient and are not tax-deductible.
